|Tap Water Drinkers - l'eau du robinet [rfl007]|
This debut release from Poznan, Poland-based producer Cristopher Pokora is a real treat for the ears. Drawing influences from a wide range of electronic music, such as the British Ninjatune label, l’eau du robinet (French for “tap water”) is a musical project which is remarkably individual in its outlook. Describing his music as a blend of electronica, chill out jazz, nu jazz and scratches, you’ll also hear snippets of spoken word audio that Cut Chemist would be proud of, as well as a co...

|Still Dreaming - l'eau du robinet [rfl011]|
The triumphant return of our favourite Polish francophile, l'eau du robinet, picks up the baton where his hugely entertaining debut on Random Flow, Tap Water Drinkers, left off. Featuring 12 tracks that show off a masterful command of sampling and arrangement, it's a really exciting long player that draws influences (and sounds) from old jazz 45s, hip-hop beats and scratches and some weird and wonderful vocal snippets...
